Yeah! Not to mention passionate and heartfelt pleas to a lover you yourself have finally scorned (Sara). It's really too bad Abandoned Love didn't make it, as it would totally be the thematic centerpiece! Having Joey on the album pushes it more into storytelling-mode, whereas I think Abandoned Love would've kept its focus primarily, like Planet Waves and Blood on the Tracks, on the love-consideration side of things.
Oh, sure, and Desire is a pretty intriguing exploration of the weird, and in terms of sexuality you get the wild and illiterate gypsy of One More Cup of Coffee, the tiny man and the soldier "thinking of forbidden love" in Black Diamond Bay, the odd homosexual undertones of Isis, etc.
